Jergens New Multi-Axis, Low Profile Vise
Jergens Inc. will be featuring a new low-profile multi-axis vise at IMTS W-2374. Among the many workholding solutions designed to reduce set up time, this Fixture Pro™ vise features a low profile to provide extended work area above the vise (increased Z travel). The design and manufacture mantains the same strength characteristics of the company's larger vises ensuring stability, repeatability and long service life. This high-quality vise offeres a wide jaw width and is available with standard mounting as well as the company's modular Drop & Lock™ version for five-axis and multi-axis applications ensuring both accuracy and quick change-over time. Jergens new Multi-Axis, Low Profile Vise will be available September 2014.
To support customer needs, Jergens, Value Added Solutions Teams (VAST) offers application expertise and provides custom solutions using either standard or customer tooling.
5-Axis Drop&Lock™ Pallet Changers on Rotary Table
Jergens Workholding Solutions presents a truly modular approach to 5-Axis machining. The Drop&Lock™ Pallet Changer serves the same function as a fixture plate, although it doesn’t have to be locked down with 4 set screws. Instead, it is installed with pull studs dropping into the bottom of the fixture or vise to literally drop into the pallet changer. Available in Round or Square pattern Drop it, Lock it, and go!
Jergens Pallet Expansion Press Release
Wednesday, July 16, 2014, Cleveland OH – Jergens Inc. announces that their range of pallet solutions has been expanded to include two more styles, a 4-Pin pallet and a manual version of the company’s popular ZPS (Zero Point System).
The new 4-Pin pallet mounts directly to the machine table and uses a single hex actuator for quick fixture exchanges with precise secure location for reduced set up time. Locating studs can be mounted directly to existing fixtures to convert them for quick change-overs. A machinable blank fixture plate is also available as an option.
The new ZPS features a manual single hex actuator to release and secure fixtures for a range of applications large and small. The manual actuation eliminates the need for air or hydraulic connections required with current ZPS systems. The new manual ZPS modules are available in two sizes, K10 and K20 and offer timing slots for 90 degree part indexing.
“The two additions complement our range of pallets that includes the Drop & Lock™ pallet changers that integrate with our Fixture-Pro® line of multi-axis tooling and our QCB series allowing customers to choose the system that matches their specific need”, says Paul Kieta, National Sales Manager for Jergens Workholding Solutions.
The Drop & Lock range of pallet changers is available in round and square configurations, two platform sizes, 130mm and 250mm, and in inch or metric mounting patterns.
The QCB pallet series is available in two sizes, can interface with the Fixture-Pro mounting system, and provides for direct mounting of Jergens 5-axis (multi-axis) vises for raising parts above the machine table for 5 axis machining access.
